The mission of Slide Ranch is to connect children to nature. We cultivate healthy bodies and minds and foster future generations of environmental stewards. By farming, cooking, caring for animals and exploring wilderness and the coast, we teach people of all ages to see the connection between their own health, a healthy food system and a healthy environment. Slide Ranch is located on the Marin coast. In 1969, 134 acres of this fertile coastline were rescued from commercial development and purchased by the Nature Conservancy. The Slide Ranch nonprofit organization was established in 1970, becoming one of the first Park Partners in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Slide Ranch provides educational day and overnight field trips for students from preschool through high school & community groups. We work with socioeconomically disadvantaged communities, people with physical and developmental disabilities, and a spectrum of at-risk, low-income, under served populations.
